Asthma is a disease that makes breathing difficult when parts of the airway become swollen, inflamed and clogged. At Nemours Children's, our pediatric allergists and pulmonologists are widely recognized for our expertise in children’s asthma. Through studies and clinical trials, we’re always looking for new ways to improve treatment and offer care backed by the latest research for asthma in children.

Why Choose Us

As innovators in asthma care and research for asthma in children, Nemours helped set the standards for the nationally recommended medication guidelines for treatment of acute asthma (also known as “asthma flare-ups” or “asthma attacks”).

We also know that asthma is the No. 1 reason why kids miss school and visit hospital emergency departments each year. That’s why our board-certified physicians, advanced practice nurses and respiratory therapists spend so much time teaching families about asthma and how best to manage it. We want kids to stay out of the hospital and be as healthy as possible. And, thanks to our award-winning electronic health record (EHR), you and all of your Nemours caregivers will have real-time access to information about your child’s asthma plan and care. Learn more about why to choose us.
